Furtopia's review by my school's censors.
« on: March 10, 2011, 04:24:17 pm »
I've noticed that many many forums are blocked at my school. Furtopia, however, was not.

I looked it up in the database just now.

I'm a little confused as to how it's classified as education as well. I could see maybe a little.

i don't know.  >.>


I remember my writing quality drastically improving while i was role-playing here constantly...  but i doubt they're counting that.   Maybe for the art tutorials and the writing and poetry or something?

Or maybe Shim has a furry friend in high places  (networking staff).   Or maybe it's just a case of someone not paying much attention.

I'd be willing to believe anyone of of those three explanations.

Probably because of some of the "unique words" and the fact we have an adult section, regardless that it's not open to the general public.

Though going back to the architecture questioning, I think it was a default grouping. Often times that and drafting in general are listed with other visual arts categories in educational lists like that.

I agree, Quamer.  I just checked that link by Shim and got the same thing you did.  Adult "lifestyles". *shrugs*

Do you think they noticed the errors because of the sudden influx of traffic to that page? ;)

Thing is now there is no R rated material anywhere public on the site.  I think the just assume furry=adult content only.  Shame but I figure with all the sites they just make quick judgements.

Well, WS, there are still a few boards and threads that appear to have adult content publicly. These are mostly in the sub-forums.  Take this, for example:

Quote
Cesarin
The artwork of Cesarin, predominately consisting of adult and artistic male nudes.

I've looked through that and cannot find any adult art currently, but the board still states that it is used for adult art.  Something like that could easily cause all of Furtopia to be put into an adult category.

What we could possibly do is get the forums ready for a re-evaluation.
